Fun, challenging and very helpful
I liked doing it but it took me a while to master it.
Seeing progress
This was a great course. I could see my progress from the one before and so that in itself is encouraging and has given me the determination to keep going . Practice , practice, practice! I once read that you don’t practice so that you can get it right, you practice so you can’t get it wrong 😇
Pushing forward
The different minor scales finally start to make some sense to the chords. That was really useful. I found Jonny Darko a little challenging to get to a reasonable tempo. Not quite there yet but close and will keep going until it is there. Time to move on, ….. a really good course on Am 👌
Fun. Lot of work for me
Step by step I realize that I'm progressig. Anyway I have to go again to my first steps every day to have a summary and have a practice of the lesson... repeat, repeat and repeat again.
Very challenging
The sound and rhythm. Still enjoying everything!
